Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • addition reaction

    A reaction in which a reagent adds to the two carbon atoms of a carbon–carbon multiple bond. (Section 24.3)

  • alkali metals

    Members of group 1A in the periodic table. (Section 7.7)

  • alkenes.

    Hydrocarbons that contain one or more carbon-carbon double bonds. They have the general formula CnH2n, where n 5 2,3, . . . . (24.2)

  • bimolecular reaction

    An elementary reaction that involves two molecules. (Section 14.6)

  • chemical shift (d)

    In an NMR spectrum, the location of a signal, defined relative to the frequency of absorption of a reference compound, tetramethylsilane (TMS).

  • Clemmensen reduction

    A reaction in which a carbonyl group is completely reduced and replaced with two hydrogen atoms.

  • decarboxylation

    A reaction involving loss of CO2, characteristic of compounds containing a carbonyl group that is beta to a COOH group.

  • dextrorotatory

    A compound that rotates plane-polarized light in a clockwise direction (+).

  • electron affinity

    The energy change that occurs when an electron is added to a gaseous atom or ion. (Section 7.5)

  • Hydroxyl group

    An !OH group

  • Ionization potential (IP)

    The minimum energy required to remove an electron from an atom or molecule to a distance where there is no electrostatic interaction between the resulting ion and electron.

  • Lewis structures

    A drawing style inwhich the electrons take center stage.linear polymer (Sect. 27.6): A polymer thathas only a minimal amount of branching or nobranching at all.

  • nonbonding pair

    In a Lewis structure a pair of electrons assigned completely to one atom; also called a lone pair. (Section 9.2)

  • Para (p)

    Refers to groups occupying l,4-positions on a benzene ring

  • phenoxide

    The conjugate base of phenol or a substituted phenol.

  • photoelectric effect

    The emission of electrons from a metal surface induced by light. (Section 6.2)

  • R,S System

    A set of rules for specifying absolute confi guration about a chiral center; also called the Cahn-Ingold-Prelog system

  • sp-hybridized

    Atomic orbitals that are achieved by mathematically averaging one s orbital with only one p orbital to form two hybridized atomic orbitals.

  • torsional strain

    The difference in energy between staggered and eclipsed conformations (for example, in ethane).

  • Triglyceride (triacylglycerol)

    An ester of glycerol with three fatty acids
